GAA and SV% are probably the worst statistical indicator in the NHL...
No substitute for watching the goalie.

I think Bryz will be the best breakaway stopper we've had since nitty. We can open up our game a bit b/c we HAVE A ****ING GOALIE!!! (who else is excited?)

Pronger had a good quote where he said (essentially ) "now I can stay in position and not be forced to block every shot b/c the goalie will block them."
How is SVPCT a bad indicator of how a goalie is playing exactly?

That PHX team isn't nearly as bad as you seem to think, and it was also well coached (which is a HUGE factor in regular season success).
